A Film Buff Heaven

9th February 2007 Print
The Sofia International Film Festival, although relatively unknown in the UK, is one of the largest festivals of its kind in south-east Europe. The March festival celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2006 with an ever growing following and with increasingly diverse content.

The festival is packed into 11 days with films showing in English, Bulgarian and Serbian across 7 different venues in Sofia. Its popularity has also spread beyond the boundaries of Bulgaria’s capital with additional events now being held in Bourgas and Plovdiv.

Having started as merely a small rock festival with a handful of music videos the Sofia International Film Festival now boasts a host of film awards including the Best Bulgarian Film and Best Short as well as Best Balkans Film and The International Federation of Film Critics awards.

Qasir Ali, MD of Bulgaria Revealed comments, “The festival reflects Sofia’s party spirit and cultural diversity which is attracting increasing numbers of visitors each year.” March would be a great time to visit the capital for both film buffs and the regular city traveller alike.
